Icon Airmada Hoodoo Helmet
Great Bang for the Buck
The style definitely isn't for everyone, but I bought this as a secondary helmet for my RF 1100 for those days I wanted to change things up a bit or if I had someone ride two up. While it is definitely louder than my Shoei, it's also less than half the price. It also has the added bonus of including the dark shield in the box, so there's no need to buy another shield to complete the look. I have not had this helmet fog up on me yet despite riding in rain and snow.

The face shield scratches very easily. After three months, I need to replace it. Night riding be came fairly dangerous with all the halos and star-fire created by the scratches.
The helmet fist very nice and has wonderful airflow. I like the looks of it and it feels solidly made. Given the nature of the shield, I wouldn't buy this item again.
I recommend the helmet overall, even with it in mind that one would be replacing a shield two to four times a year, depending on how much you ride. When you add that up (40.00 * n replacements) you're looking at enough money for a big name helmet like Shoei or Arai, over the course of a few years.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
I was surprised when I first put on the helmet at how tight the fit was and I almost returned it for a larger size but i am glad i didn't. After wearing the helmet for a couple hours the inner lining has broke in quite a bit and it is now very comfortable.

This is my second helmet. Quieter than the first. Discovered I am a long oval. UNBELIEVABLE air flow! This helmet breathes amazing. Headset fit in nicely. A little tight at the opening while putting the helmet on, and bites my ear; but once it is on it fits perfect.

I would definitely recommend it as a first full face
Ill say this much i went from a half helmet to this due to the fact in live in NYC and travel now to work with my bike over 45 miles one way so needed i guess some more protection and wind protection . Its definitely a looker very nice and very nice feel wit that matt black finish that doesn't smudge or leave marks .
The number one down fall is its extremely tight around the cheek area but fits decent around the head area . I am normally a medium in all my helmets but i went a size biger on this since every one was saying it runs tight . Well sure it does . I understand there is a braking in period but this helmet is truly tight around the cheek area if i bit down while riding i end up biting the inside of my cheeks thats how tight but hopefully it brakes in and as far as vision has a big opening which is good just rides weird around the brow area feels like it pulls down a bit . All in all not bad for the price just wished that it came with two shields a clear and smoked out .

Awesome helmet for the price
I got this as my first helmet and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. The long oval shape fits my head perfectly, no pressure points on my forehead that I experienced with other helmets. The lining and the airflow make it very comfortable and a great helmet for the price.

The Icon Airmada SB1 fits my Oval shaped Noggin very well ! comfortable over many hours.
The icon Airmada SB1 helmet is the most comfortable helmet I've worn so far. It is a good fit for my oval shaped noggin ! I find this helmet to be comfortable for hours. Visibility is good up/down and side/side. I like the 'click' shut visor. The airflow is nice too. I'll know more about the airflow when summer comes around and the temps. top !00*F here is Tucson, AZ. I really like the style. I selected the yellow for high vis.. I love this helmet. for my Oval shaped Noggin !

Great fit and looks awesome.
This helmet is a great buy for the price. Shipping was fast and free. The helmet is comfortable especially after the break-in. The only way I'd say it could be improved would be a chin curtain because that's where a lot of noise comes in, but other than that, no complaints from me.
